Alcohol Problems Limited At Mother Lode Fair

Sonora, CA — Excessive use of alcohol did not prove to be a major problem for law enforcement officers at the Mother Lode Fair this past weekend.

Four alcohol related fights took place Friday evening. Three arrests were made for fighting while the fourth was for public intoxication. 

Three fights, none of them alcoholic related, were documented Saturday evening … no arrests were made. Police Chief Mark Stinson commented, "That’s a first since I’ve been here, not a single Saturday evening alcohol related arrest." 

Sunday there were three arrests; two for public intoxication and the other; a minor in possession of alcohol.
